Again proving that nuns are something that God should had never planned out in the first place, this English language Spanish flick had us going through a familiar plotline involving a revenge seeking ghost nun killing off women who's somehow connected to her. By somehow I meant they killed her. Ain't a surprise. Ain't a spoiler. I've seen it miles away. I must be watching too much of these...
Eighteen years ago, a group of six preteens are terrorized in an all-girls Catholic School by a uber-strict nun who's mean of punishment includes making you eat paper or washing your groin with a shower head. Something happen some time later-*coughMURDER*cough- so we move to the present, as in 2005, young Eve, daughter of one of the girls, witnessed her mother got murdered by a levitating, semi-aquatic nun; cops didn't make out anything from it, and it was labeled as suicide, but after one of her mother's friends also got killed in an "accident' involving an elevator, she decided to join her friends' visit to Spain and try to see a likely explanation to why this is happening.
While in Spain, she met a cute priest-in-training who reluctantly helped her find another friend of her mother's, who just by luck also got murdered no sooner. In a race against time to save what's left of them, Eve had to go back to where it all started, and hopefully stop the nun before it's all too late.
The little flaws wasn't really that bad, one can easily overlook it, but this movie had done perhaps one of the biggest mess-ups I'd seen in terms of making plot twists, so bad that it kinda ruined everything that it was building to; you see, there was no killer nun. It's all Eve. Or at least they try to make it look that way.

Yes, Mabel. yes it is...
Watching this movie could might as well be watching I know what you did Last Summer, only with a wet nun instead of a wet fisherman, a dumb try-hard twist that came out of nowhere in an attempt to top High Tension's, and oddly long for a slasher film. (101 Minutes. Ten minutes of that came from our cast explaining a lot of things we figured out on our own already) And yet, I'm giving it a pass for at least a fun 90 minutes before they ruined it. Now, please excuse me, I'm gonna watch some cartoons to mend and relax my brain...
